Fixed WordPress 5 Breaks The New Divi Builder Plugin

October 3, 2019 1 By Bernardo Ryan


Hi guys and welcome to another Divi
WordPress tutorial this Jamie from https://www.system22.net and http://web-design-and-tech-tips.com/ well this is a follow up from the last video that we did just upgraded to
WordPress 5.0 and before we did that we upgraded our Divi theme and the new Divi
builder and thing this broke and I’ve been having a lot of comments both on
the YouTube channel and on the blog and from my customers sending me emails but
quite a few people have had this problem I don’t know whether it was with
WordPress or with the Divi theme I doubt if it was with the Divi it’s been so
reliable but anyway I’ve come back into this site
thankfully I had a backup of my site which I actually installed locally on my
computer and did the updates that way and it worked absolutely fine so why it
didn’t work on the online version I don’t know and if anybody’s interested
in learning how to build sites locally on your machine rather than online have
a look down below we’ve got a course on that so anyway I’ve come back to this
site and I noticed there’s an update if we go to – there we’ve got the divi 18.2 three-point 18.2
installed and there’s a new update 2.4 so I’m going to go ahead and update that
and see if it fixes our Builder problem I’m going to go ahead and update the
theme theme updated successfully okay well
let’s do what we did last time go and see if we can actually edit a page hey let’s go let’s try that you Oh oh hey there we are there’s our new
Divi builder oops did I speak too soon and there is excellent there’s a new
Divi builder with its sections rows and content there
which is great it’s got some wonderful features we’ll cover them in another
video and you can preview it quickly on desktop laptop mobile it’s pretty quick
for a preview not actually leaving anyway you’re just doing it right there
and then that’s great okay so that’s very proved pleasing thank you
Divi or thank you elegant themes you’ve done it yet again you’ve fix that problem so anybody is
out there just update your theme to the latest one if you’ve been having
problems and it should fix it I’d like to say though that let’s just visit this
site I’ve probably got 30 sites with Divi on
it of those sites this was the only one that gave me that problem but like I
said judging by the emails that people gave me at service vision we are going
to work in real time judging by the emails and comments that I got quite a
few people were having this issue yep my works absolutely fine or it’s
still spinning no there we go that is absolutely fantastic brilliant
that’s a really quick fix like I said I don’t know if it was elegant themes
divvy or whether it is WordPress that was a pretty huge WordPress update to
the Gutenberg or to their blocks editing system
so if you find this editor a little daunting at first it does look
a little bit different from the regular one we had there you can switch back to
the classic notice if you don’t have that particular button or let’s just hit
it here and see I may have enabled this before we have a you can just switch back to
the classic if you want to but I’m sure if you persevere with a new one you’re
not gonna want to for those of you that may not have that as I’ve tweaked this
side a little bit since the last video if you could add to your
TV theme option I will leave the page and I want to save any changes
and go over to builder its a tab called
builder there you’ve got some regular options here
enable Divi builder on post types Hades post projects if you hit the
Advanced tab you’ve got some buttons down here and
yours may be off down there to enable the classic editor if you still want to
use that so just make sure that’s enabled
and I haven’t got that enabled but it’s working for some reason well it’s just
enable it hit the save wait we got our little green check
button let’s try editing one of those pages again you you that’s fine TV builders working absolutely fine it’s
good a wireframe for you I don’t know if I’ve got the old or the new yet it’s the
new one fantastic here’s the new one yet again
okay let’s exit that visual builder let’s go back to the page-level and see if we can’t Thanks back to our dashboard let’s edit from the actual page level I want to edit it you there we go fantastic so everything is working absolutely
perfectly thank you so much elegant things and divvy if you don’t
have divvy and you’re building any sort of WordPress site at all
